A transformative, fascinating theory—based on robust and groundbreaking experimental research—reveals how our unconscious fear of death powers almost everything we do, shining a light on the hidden motives that drive human behaviour. More than one hundred years ago, the American philosopher William James dubbed the knowledge that we must die “the worm at the core” of the human condition. In 1974, cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker won the Pulitzer Prize for his book The Denial of...

The Economic Battle: The story of World War Two is usually told in terms of heroism on the battlefield, but perhaps the most important struggle was the economic battle. Across the world countries were fighting to feed their populations, maximise production from their factories and fund their armies. To mark the 80th anniversary of the start of World War Two, economist Duncan Weldon examines how the economies of the European powers, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the Soviet Union, set...

The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy An extraordinary mythology has grown up around the Third Reich that hovers over political and moral debate even today. Adam Tooze's controversial new book shatters the still persistent myth that Nazi Germany was an unstoppable juggernaut backed by an efficient, highly industrialized economy. The Wages of Destruction challenges the conventional interpretations of that period to explore how Hitler's surprisingly prescient vision—ultimately hindered by...

The Third Reich lasted for 12 years, 3 months and 9 days. It began with great hopes and unprecedented jubilation and ended after a world war in which 50 million people were killed and Germany was destroyed. To mark the 65th anniversary of the seizure of power by the Nazis, SPIEGEL embarks on a unique journey through the bleakest chapter of German history. Michael Kloft traces the story of the Third Reich, painting a picture of Nazi dictatorship behind the propaganda by utilizing what in some...

Fascism was the major political invention of the twentieth century and the source of much of its pain. How can we try to comprehend its allure and its horror? Is it a philosophy, a movement, an aesthetic experience? What makes states and nations become fascist? Acclaimed historian Robert O. Paxton shows that in order to understand fascism we must look at it in action—at what it did, as much as what it said it was about. He explores its falsehoods and common threads; the social and political...

Ordinary Fascism is composed primarily of Nazi archival material, and the film archives what few others have: it appears fresh and provokes reflection. Painstaking research was conducted over the course of two years by a thirteen-member team. They examined Russian, Polish and East German photo archives and two million metres of Nazi-era films, including Goebbels's personal archive, which had been brought to Moscow by the Red Army. These efforts yielded a large number of documents that still...

Unlike many other books that track Adolf Hitler's career after 1933, this book focuses on his formative period—immediately following World War I (1918-1924). The author, a veteran producer of historical documentaries, brings to life this era of political unrest and violent conflict, when forces on both the left and right were engaged in a...

Pauwels explains in this book, corporations were delighted with the profits that came from re-arming Germany, and then supplying both sides of the Second World War.
